+* dvp-eu
+
+ Just another variant of the dvorak layout, made for programmers that
+ need also to type in non-english languages.
+
+** Goals
+
+ Build a decent, balanced layout and made it configurable through
+ provided patches.
+
+** Current status
+
+ This project is in its early stage of development. I'm still
+ looking for some ideas and feedback so the placement of some keys
+ may change, until a stable release.
+
+** Usage
+
+ Just put the =dvp-eu= file in some decent place, like
+ =/usr/X11R6/share/X11/xkb/symbols/= on OpenBSD, and =loadkeys
+ dvp-eu=. Than you're done!
+
+** Preview
+
+ Given that, as of now, the layout is still not definitive, I'm not
+ providing any preview of the placement. I'll provide one when it
+ will be finished. As of now, you can get a preview of the keyboard
+ with
+
+ #+BEGIN_SRC sh
+ setxkbmap dvp-eu -print | xkbcomp - - | xkbprint - - | ps2pdf -pict all - > dvp-eu.pdf
+ #+END_SRC
